History of Stretty News

Stretty News was founded and launched in 2010 to provide news and opinion for Manchester United fans through an independent fansite. Once established it became a platform for writers and to create high qualify sports journalism.

The brainchild of Dale O’Donnell, an Irish journalist who contributes work to a number of renowned media outlets, Stretty News has brought an array of professionals from the media industry together through the highly addictive drug that is Manchester United.

From the beginning, the goal behind Stretty News was to provide daily news updates for Manchester United worldwide. Perhaps predictably, that became repetitive and Stretty News now strives to bring you non-knee jerk opinions. Simultaneously, we strive to provide fans with the very best Manchester United content from as many angles as possible.

Stretty News is an open platform for anybody with an opinion or interest in Manchester United. The blog is always looking to strengthen with a bigger team of columnists; be they budding journalists or your normal bloke that travels home and away.

As an independent voice of Manchester United we cover and have covered a wide range of areas that involve the club we love. The satirical content put together by our writers helps set up apart from the rest but there is also room for opinion pieces on fan matters, first-team shenanigans and stories about the club’s rich history.

Stretty News and Stretty News TV — available on YouTube — have had exclusive interviews with Gary Neville, Lou Macari, Norman Whiteside, John O’Shea, Danny Higginbotham, Ryan Shawcross, Philippe Auclair, Guillem Balague, Danny Pugh, Andy Ritchie, Kasey Keller, Paul Scholes, Tyson Fury, Daniel Webber, Keith Gillespie, Daniel Nardiello, Anthony Crolla, Scott McGarvey, among others.
